- Everyone goes to the Black and White Ball, where Flow (rock star du jour) is performing. He sees Serena and falls for her immediately. Serena has fun with him for a sec, but then gets bored of him like always. Leaves him begging for more at the end of the book. Starts hooking up with Aaron, Blair's stepbrother, who is trying to get over his incestuous crush on B ...more
If I had to pick three words to describe this book, these would be it. The amount of name dropping in this book ridiculous. I've never seen so much name dropping. Not even in My Immortal.
Also, Waldorf getting pregnant? Not a plot twist. Everyone knows that since they got married in the last book. I'm a genius, aren't I?
So, let's begin with this review, shall we?
This book was mediocre, with little plot, and I wanted to kill all the characters. I have a bit of a violent strea ...more
PLOT: After the Black and White formal, Blair and Serena go to Saint Bart's on a vacation to join up with Blair's mom and new stepdad Cyrus. Aaron goes along with a friend Miles. He discovers that he's starting to want Blair as more than a sibling and basically is in his feelings the whole trip. While a famous singer becomes obsessed with Serena and keeps sending her anonymous gifts. Nate and Jenni get caught up in a scandal involving an intimate moment caug ...more
I also enjoyed Aaron's cute, unrequited crush on Blair and the continuing hijinks related to the ongoi ...more
Moments of genuine humor are trapped here among superficial, mostly unlikeable characters. I did enjoy watching Serena do whatever the fuck she wanted and disregard men. I did enjoy watching Blair finally take a stand against Nate. Good, strong female shi ...more
I would never recommend these to friends. However, there is something about the series that I find mindless and entertaining. Like TV in a book.
The novel All I Want is Everything, by Cecily von Ziegesar, is a story that is centered around two wealthy and fashionable girls Serena and Blair. The other characters, including a filmmaker, a poet, Blair’s ex boyfriend,a young girl desperate for love, and Nate’s friends- add drama to the story, leaving the reader wanting to read more.
The setting and the plot of this story is very interesting and realistic. Blair’s ex boyfriend, Nate, is stuck in a love triangle. He and Blair had dated for so...more

The truth is, the only thing that makes famous people interesting is that they're famous.
I think the same applies for the characters of this novel. The only thing that makes them interesting is that they are rich and somewhat famous. Otherwise, they are just those whining, annoying, spoiled people we don't even want to associate with.
This third time around, good old Nate might be back on the fence in a classic he only wants wh ...more

All I Want Is Everything kicks off after Blairs mother gets married. With the addition of a creepy stalker rock star and yet again NO CHUCK BASS this book was just meh for me. I know Chuck isn't a recurring character in the books but still there truly isn't enough of him. And if I have to deal with Jenny Humphrey and her annoying teenage woes muc ...more
